Chuy’s Creamy Jalapeño Ranch Copycat Recipe

This Chuy’s creamy jalapeño ranch copycat recipe tastes so much like the real thing, you might not know the difference. We put this on tacos, tortillas, chicken, salad~everything!!!


My favorite thing about Chuy’s is their jalapeño dip. It is tangy, perfectly spicy, and delicious. I could eat an entire bowl all by myself!

I tried a handful of recipes but could never get a homemade version that tasted just like the real thing. Most recipes that I tried were too “mayonaissey.” After tweaking a few, I came up with this version. It is FAB~just like the Chuy’s dip! It does have mayo, but you can’t tell. It is ranchy, spicy, and kicky~just like the restaurant dip.

This makes a huge amount, so definitely half this for a small family. We use this to drizzle on taco salad, tacos, and this yummy slow cooker Tex-Mex shredded chicken.
